Jackson Payne – Senior Men’s Canadian All Round Champion !!!!!!!

And again ... I know this is a girls blog but how could we not recognize how amazing Jackson did at Nationals?!  On top of his gold AA, Jackson also got 1st on pommels and floor, and 3rd on high bar (with a fall) and p bars.  Brandon got 1st on p bars, 3rd on floor, and 4th on vault.  It was really fun to watch Jackson and Brandon compete event finals on CBC on Saturday.

Congrats to all our Capital City boys who competed at nationals!
